NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, a favorite among liberals for her forceful advocacy for consumers and attacks against the financial industry, has a book deal.
Henry Holt and Company announced Wednesday that the Massachusetts Democrat has an agreement with the publisher. The book, currently untitled, is scheduled to be released in spring 2014.
Warren will write about her childhood and early professional life, but the book will mostly be a "rousing call" for the middle class. She will describe her work on creating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and her opposition to "powerful interests" in Washington and on Wall Street.
Warren was well represented for her book. Negotiations were handled by Robert Barnett, the Washington attorney whose clients have ranged from President Barack Obama to former Treasury Secretaries Henry Paulson and Timothy Geithner.
